Laser stretch mark treatment is appropriate for any skin type, including very light and very dark skin. We will discuss with you whether you are a good candidate for this treatment. Pulses of fractional laser light or Vbeam are used to break down stretch marks, triggering new tissue production at the site and helping to improve stretch marks. The new collagen can leave the stretch mark smoother in texture and reduce the appearance of the stretch mark on the skin. This procedure can be performed in as little as 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area. Most feel minimal pain during the laser procedure and need 3-5 treatments sessions for optimum results. Some people experience a temporary redness and swelling of the stretch mark which may last a few days. We will discuss other potential side effect with you.
